|Memory Self - T.Collins Logan|
Drawing on entertaining and sometimes harrowing stories from his childhood, T.Collins Logan explores the structure and meaning of memory and its relationship to personal identity in his life. First he develops a simplified cognitive model of memory, integrating other memory systems - such as somatic and spiritual - into a dynamic landscape, the memory field. He then introduces an integral method of consciously influencing these memory systems over time, active memory reorganization (AMR)...

|ERIC ED266358: Self-Concept: An Operational Model for Educators. - ERIC|
This document begins by discussing the important role self-concept plays in a student's academic achievement, social adjustment, and physical capability. A perceptual notion of self-concept is defined as awareness through senses. An operational notion of self-concept is defined as self-descriptive behaviors. Literature is reviewed which defines self-concept and concludes that measurement of different definitions are difficult to perform...

Since the early 1950's the principal prescriptive model in the psychological study of decision making has been maximization of Subjective Expected Utility (SEU). This SEU maximization has come to be regarded as a description of how people go about making decisions. However, while observed decision processes sometimes resemble the SEU model, decisions appear to be made in an intuitive manner much more frequently...

This overview of the self-concept theory describes how people organize and interpret their personal existence. It discusses the beginnings and recent history of the self-concept theory, and presents three major qualities of self-concept: that it is learned, organized, and dynamic. It asserts that individuals have relatively boundless potential for developing a positive and realistic self-concept. (NB)

Most of the research findings on the relationship between traditional gender-role traits and self-concept suggest that only traditionally masculine traits relate significantly to a positive self-concept for both males and females. This research has been limited in two ways. First, most studies have used student samples; second, most have used single-score measures of self-concept. The present study addresses those limitations by testing relationships between gender-role traits and a broad spectr...

Self-concept is one of the most popular ideas in psychological literature. Unfortunately, it is also an illusive and often poorly defined construct. Before attempting to assess self-concept, counseling practitioners or researchers must first clarify for themselves what they mean by "self-concept" and then choose a method or instrument consistent with that definition. Perhaps one of the most important distinctions that differentiates various conceptualizations is whether self-concept is viewed as...

Masculinity (M) and Femininity (F) were related to multiple dimensions of self-concept for responses from 962 high school students. Androgyny theory predicts that F, as well as M, will contribute positively and uniquely to self-concept, but previous research has typically found that the contribution of F is nil or even negative after controlling for the contribution of M. However, in the present research, M scores and F scores each contributed positively and uniquely to the prediction of self-co...

Self-concept ideas can be reformulated and integrated into an objectives oriented model of school learning. Bloom's model (1976) involving mastery learning already incorporates self-concept elements, but needs to be developed theoretically to include norm-referenced as well as criterion-referenced approaches to assessing self-concepts. This involves reconceptualizing self-concepts in perceived self-efficacy, a notion derived from Bandura's (1977) social learning theory...
